    Gorgeous pics.

    Spiderwort was absolutely beautiful.

    We were in Bluejohn a few weeks ago and shot these pics.

    The Sweet Pea in the wash bottom was everywhere, in big clumps like this one.

    We later came across this one, but not sure what it is. I suspect it is some kind of paintbrush?

    That would be:
    1. Sacred Datura -- Datura wrightii
    2. White tufted evening primrose -- Oenothera caespitosa
    3. Spiderwort -- Tradescantia occidentalis
    4. Beavertail Cactus -- genus Opuntia, but I have not gotten the various species sorted out...
    5. Sego Lily -- Calochortus nuttallii

    Nice pics!
